As Jon Leonard pointed out a couple messages ago, PPM is pretty easy.

Check out

     <URL: http://www.dsc.ed.ac.uk/~mxr/gfx/2d/PPM.txt>

for a full description of PPM format.

     <URL: http://www.dsc.ed.ac.uk/~mxr/gfx/2d-lo.html>

has a list of gobs of image formats. 

LING: you may want to add that to the useful URLs section of the FAQ.
      I know it's going in my bookmarks.  :)
